Lenten reflections, part 1

Thoughts on Lent while I’m doing booth duty in Las Vegas

Ann Fontaine made the following suggestions in her sermon for the Last Sunday after the Epiphany. She reflects on what we might fast from and what we might feast on during Lent. I found this quite thought provoking.

Fast from judgment, Feast on compassion
Fast from greed, Feast on sharing
Fast from scarcity, Feast on abundance
Fast from fear, Feast on peace
Fast from lies, Feast on truth
Fast from gossip, Feast on praise
Fast from anxiety, Feast on patience
Fast from evil, Feast on kindness
Fast from apathy, Feast on engagement
Fast from discontent, Feast on gratitude
Fast from noise, Feast on silence
Fast from discouragement, Feast on hope
Fast from hatred, Feast on love
What will be your fast? What will be your feast?

    Very nice. For a number of years I have quoted a friend who offered the “fast” list which I preferred to the chocolate or meat or whatever. This is the first time I have seen the “feast” list though and I like it. Even at a time of slowing down and quietness and fasting, there are indeed so many things to feast on. A blessed Lent, Mike, and thanks for posting this.
